• Newbie Artist Training Grounds X: Day 27

    Got to say I think this has to be one of my favorite prompts for this whole event! You all got so creative with the two different prompts that I didn't know exactly what to expect. From adventures to wild ponies, we seem to have it all tonight.

    In our art roundup tonight we managed to pull in 95 ponies which brings us up to 3363 ponies altogether! Another great showing my friends, keep it up!

    I only really noticed now as we enter the last few days of the NATG that for a show about friendship we haven't really had a prompt that is focused on it! In the spirit of the show for tonight I'd like you to Draw a pony giving the gift of friendship / Draw a pony mending fences.

    As always you can find the submitter here.

    For our mobile friends trying to upload, try this:

    Once you have the image uploaded to Twitter, DeviantArt, wherever try this Touch and hold the image. Depending on what browser you’re using, select the image URL by tapping the links below: Chrome: Copy link address Safari: Copy

    Use that URL in the compiler for your image. Hopefully that works!

    Max Image Resolution is 2000x2000! Resize your pictures to make sure they are the appropriate size, any image software should be able to help you.

    Animations do not animate when sent through the compiler! Include some text with your submitted animation that people should follow your links to the source to see the animation in full.

    Remember, our compiler for the old prompt is up a few hours even after this post goes up with the new prompt so feel free to submit your submission to the previous day's submitter!

    Also, if you are late submitting and the submitter is closed, don't just throw your pic into the next day's submitter. Wait for a Makeup Day to submit!

    Attention Discord Users:

    For those of you with Discord we are really pulling out all the stops this year as we have a channel on EqD's official Discord server called #artist-training-ground for you to hang out in with your fellow artists during the event. You can join our Discord server here.

    Check on after the break for today's gallery!

  • Diamond Tiara Music: Direct Current - House Canary [Alternative Electronic/Indie Pop]

    Direct Current made a much welcomed song about Diamond Tiara's character depth and how she's been caged as a bird by her parents (not without reminding of Yukiko in Persona 4), and such character-driven works are always so appreciated. The lyrics speaking about her struggle, the vocals full of compassion toward her, and the emotional instrumental are all part of this powerful song about Diamond. The melodic part starting at 1:31 in particular is my favorite moment!

  • Kotobukiya Reveals Limited-Edition EQG-Colored Pinkie Pie

    Kotobukiya continues to share the pony love with a new, limited-edition Pinkie Pie bishoujo statue. This particular variant has her rocking her Equestria Girls skin tone, as well as a special sparkly mane and hairstyle, and more highly detailed box.

    With the first wave of statues becoming harder to get a hold of, these ones will likely be extremely sought-after.

    Check out below the break for the announcement tweet and more images.

  • Nightly Discussion #2206

    I wonder what sort of adventures Braeburn gets up to out on the frontier? Could have been a cool part of Equestria to explore.

    Evening my friends, hope you all had a good Monday!

  • New Counter Response to The Atlantic's Brony Nazi Article from Quillete, Focuses on NSFW Instead

    We were originally going to just move on from this one, but since so many people are bringing it up, it's probably disingenuous to ignore it. After The Atlantic's article a few days ago, another news organization has decided to pick up the story and bring on an alternate perspective. They dig into the numbers in specific over on derpi, citing that while there are racist images, they are a tiny fraction of the overall content.Instead, Quillete focuses on how much explicit material there is, and how much it greatly outnumbers the political drawings.

    Consider it an alternate outlook on the topic.

    As a general warning, they do get pretty NSFW in their language. If "clop" bothers you, steer clear. 

    Read it over here. 

    Thanks to beans, Forcling, and everyone else for sending it. 
  • Animation: Reflections

    We previewed this animation for you all back in mid-May and it looked to have quite a bit of promise! Now, a month and a half later, the project is finished and is up for view on Youtube, in Russian and Chinese too for our viewers who have those as their native language (check the video description).

    Now, sit back and relax. You can find the video after the break!

    Thanks to all of the people who sent this in!
  • Pony Con Feelings Music: DoTheDaringDew - We Were Here [Soft Rock]

    Dewie just released a masterpiece of music and pony emotions, acting as a wonderful and heartfelt tribute to pony con experiences, and calling for us to reflect on them too. See my wall of text comment on the song to get an idea of how much I love it, although words are not enough to express how much I appreciate heartfelt and meaningful works like these. Not only the message and heart behind it, but the music in itself is quite amazing, and those have got to be the best vocals from Dewie that I've ever heard. And when you think that they have so much relatable feelings behind them, it just blows you away... and makes for a certain emotion, of brony spirit and love toward fellow bronies, that is just... beyond words. But you may know what I'm talking about! Come here everypony... *group hug with all of you* I love you all so much!!

  • Fanfiction: A Charmed Life

    Author: BlazzingInferno
    Description: Ponyville was supposed to be Ditzy’s fresh start, a chance to leave the past behind and be her own mare. So what if that fresh start includes sleeping in her second cousin’s spare bedroom? So what if she’s working double shifts at the Hay Burger? She’s got a plan, a plan that starts with the expensive items that mysteriously appear on the second-hoof store’s shelves on a very special day of the month.
    A season one story.
